On September 21st 2013 Slovakia hosted the fourth official Pride March, supporting the rights of the LGBTI community – that is people who are either Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Intersexual. Katarina Richterova decided to look at the topic more closely.
Just 20 hours before the Pride March took off ... the preparations were pretty tense
Preparations for the march
Before the march, throughout the whole week, it was all eyes on human rights. The media covered the topic, talking to many LGBT activists, as well as activists from the Pro Life movement. Many discussions were held about the state of these human rights in our country and the everyday life of LGBTI people.
State of everyday life
At 1 pm on Saturday, the Pride March took off. As it is basically all about love – Katarina Richterova asked people at the march, hetero or homosexuals, what love feels like to them?
